Title Notification of a cohort of workers at risk of bladder cancer
Bibliographic information Jan. 1985, Vol.27, No.1, p.19-28. 13 ref. Illus.
Abstract Members of a cohort of 1,385 chemical workers in the USA, who had handled carcinogenic amines (β-naphthylamine, benzidine, o-toluidine) were notified by mail that they were likely to be at increased risk of bladder cancer. A bladder cancer screening and follow-up programme was established. The complexity of actions needed and the problems encountered when communicating information on risk are discussed.
